With its own independent entrance beneath a beautiful family home, this flat is large and modern, with a flat-screen TV and full cooking facilities to allow you a cosy evening at home after a day of sightseeing. One double bedroom plus a large living room with a sofa bed for an extra guest or even a couple of children. Direct access to a charming shared garden. Lydia the owner can come and collect you from the bottom of the road with her car if you don't fancy the uphill walk with your suitcases. Just at the top of the road, within the Telegraph Hill park, you can enjoy some of the most breathtaking views of London to be found. Or a lovely game of tennis on the communal courts. This is a creative residential community, with a large student presence thanks to nearly Goldsmiths art school.
New Cross also lends itself to socialising, the local bars are full of art students from nearby Goldsmiths college, and hipster east london is just a few tube stops away in Shoreditch. Twenty minutes to all the tourist hotspots, in central London, or a five minute bus ride in the other direction will lead you to the delights of Greenwich, home to the Royal Observatory, London's only Planetarium and the origin of "Universal Time".
British Rail train one stop to London Bridge, or the London Overground tube line which connects easily with the Jubilee line into central London. Ten minutes away from leafy Greenwich, where you can catch a river boat all the way down the Thames and up to Westminster itself.
Gatwick airport extremely accessible with the Gatwick Express train, changing once at Croydon station.
